Continuing our commitment to support all major cloud providers, today we are adding support for Oracle’s Kubernetes-managed cloud service, OKE – Oracle Kubernetes Engine in Pipeline. We are building a feature rich enterprise-grade application platform on top of Kubernetes - called Pipeline - to deliver a better DevOps experience by automating the lifecycle management of applications. This experience is now available to OKE users as well; here, we will guide you through the first steps of using OKE and summarize the benefits of using Pipeline.

At Banzai Cloud we are building a feature rich enterprise-grade application platform, built for containers on top of Kubernetes, called Pipeline. With Pipeline we provision large, multi-tenant Kubernetes clusters on all major cloud providers, specifically AWS, GCP, Azure, AliCloud, Oracle and BYOC - on-premise and hybrid - and deploy all kinds of predefined or ad-hoc workloads to these clusters. For us and our enterprise users authentication and authorization is absolutely vital, thus, in order to access the Kubernetes API and the Services in an authenticated manner as defined within Kubernetes, we arrived at a simple but flexible solution.

A few months ago the Kubernetes Operator SDK was released with one of its goals being the conversion of human operational knowledge into code. At Banzai Cloud we’ve been contributors and early adopters of this technology, since it provides a better standardized method of automating our processes and allows us to dramatically ease the lives of our customers. We are building a feature rich enterprise-grade application platform, built for containers on top of Kubernetes, called Pipeline, wherein we endeavour to automate the DevOps experience and the lifecycle of deployments.

At Banzai Cloud we are building a feature-rich enterprise-grade application platform, built for containers on top of Kubernetes, called Pipeline. Applications deployed to Pipeline automatically inherit the platform’s features: enterprise-grade security, observability (centralized log collection, monitoring and tracing), discovery, high availability and resiliency, just to name a few - encapsulated in spotguides. One of the most popular spotguides we deploy is Spark. In the past few months we’ve been working and pushing many pull requests to make Spark a first class player on Kubernetes and to make it resilient.

A few weeks back we released Telescopes, our Kubernetes cluster layout recommender application. That application has evolved quite a bit, and in this post we’ll provide insight into some its new features and recent changes. Cloud cost management series: Overspending in the cloud Managing spot instance clusters on Kubernetes with Hollowtrees Monitor AWS spot instance terminations Diversifying AWS auto-scaling groups Draining Kubernetes nodes tl;dr: We added new features to Telescopes to provide support for blacklisting or whitelisting instance types Recommendation accuracies can now be checked There is now support that allows asking cloud instance types for CPU, memory and network performance.

One of our goals at BanzaiCloud is to make our customers’ lives easier by providing low barrier to entry, easy to use solutions for running applications on Kubernetes. To achieve this, we often rely on Kubernetes Operators to provide comprehensive solutions over the course of an application’s lifecycle. Here is a list of our operators, which we have already open sourced: Vault Operator Prometheus JMX Exporter Operator Wildfly Operator

At Banzai Cloud we are building a feature rich enterprise-grade application platform, built for containers on top of Kubernetes, called Pipeline. Security is one of our main areas of focus, and we strive to automate and enable those security patterns we consider essential, including tier zero features for all enterprises using the Pipeline Platform. We’ve blogged about how to handle security scenarios on several of our previous posts. This time we’d like to focus on a different aspect of securing Kubernetes deployments:

At Banzai Cloud we are building a feature-rich enterprise-grade application platform, built for containers on top of Kubernetes, called Pipeline. For an enterprise-grade application platform security is a must and it has many building blocks. Please read through the Security series on our blog to learn how we deal with a variety of security-related issues. Security series: Authentication and authorization of Pipeline users with OAuth2 and Vault Dynamic credentials with Vault using Kubernetes Service Accounts Dynamic SSH with Vault and Pipeline Secure Kubernetes Deployments with Vault and Pipeline Policy enforcement on K8s with Pipeline The Vault swiss-army knife The Banzai Cloud Vault Operator Vault unseal flow with KMS

At Banzai Cloud we are building a feature rich enterprise-grade application platform, built for containers on top of Kubernetes, called Pipeline. With Pipeline we provision large, multi-tenant Kubernetes clusters on all major cloud providers such as AWS, GCP, Azure, Oracle, Alibaba and BYOC, on-premise and hybrid, and deploy all kinds of predefined or ad-hoc workloads to these clusters. For us and our enterprise users, Kubernetes secret management (base 64) was not sufficient, so we chose Vault and added Kubernetes support to manage our secrets.
